COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This dark amber wheat beer features fruity and spicy aromas galore. Significant strength underlies the pleasant citric appeal of this bock beer. Redolent with the flavors of harvest fruit, Moonglow typifies the traditional weizenbock-style so thoroughly enjoyed throughout Bavaria. Left unfiltered, its unique yeast strain gives Moonglow a radiance all its own.

Capa (2627) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Lightly hazy brown with a ring of tan head. Aroma is sweet, malty, wheat, and fruity. Smooth, full body. Fruity, caramel, banana, light clove, and light yeast notes. Very well done.

Jado (766) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2016
355 ml bottle. Hazy orange-amber with a tightly packed off-white head. Aromas of banana, raisins, cinnamon, ginger biscuits and orange peel. Starts out with a lot of sweet dried fruit but that’s soon overtaken by a firm orange and pepper spice note. Relatively dry finish leads into a spicy aftertaste. Impressive.

I usually go for the trappist-style beer but thought I’d branch out. This is one amazing brew!

A nice dunkelweisen. Pours a very nice deep Amber with a white head. Smells of banana, berries, vanilla. Taste is smooth and sweet, with lots of berries and banana, and a bit of vanilla. Well-balanced. Had in the bottle.

Dacrza (837) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2016
UPDATED: APR 23, 2016 DATE: April 22, 2016... OCCASION: Cavs up 3-0, Joey’s first tee ball game, and a better end to the school day than expected... GLASSWARE: Schneider’s Weisen pokal... APPEARANCE: the glass divides into a robust copper body that houses a lazy effervescence and a thick, craggy, resistant white head that pillows nicely... AROMA: fragrant, earthy spiciness suggests hops, though the main aroma is an astringent vapor that says 8.7% up front... banana and clove, yes... PALATE: slick, medium-bodied, vibrant body that leaves a tingling at the throat... the aftertaste lingers, but pleasantly so... TASTE: banana and clove, with the bread and toast of a malt-forward beer... enough fruitiness--apple, plum--to complicate the profile.... slightly acidic and sweet--challenging to nail down, but enjoyable in its weight and strength... OVERALL: another victory for Victory--an autumn glory that rises in the spring, and shows enough complexity to encourage the next sip... BIG but balanced and packaged in a palatable way...
